This blog post is in response to Natalie’s 10 Day Freedom Plan Blog Challenge Day 4
Today’s blog post is about my superpowers and what I like to do. Learning I have superpowers has been my ultimate aha moment! This is like writing a resume except it’s who I am without my credentials or degrees. These are my character strengths. My superpowers and what I like to do tie in together beautifully and directly to my goals as an empowering, motivational, healing, and inspirational author, healer, and coach. My superpowers:
I like to have fun, or make the best of a bad situation. When I have to do a challenging task or just something I don’t want to do, I sing, play music, or dance while doing it. I also believe in the healing powers of laughter.
I write and tell stories about my personal healing journey to inspire others. Others frequently tell me they were inspired by my book or something I wrote.
I am resilient; I’ve been through a lot of stuff and lived to tell about it. This means I don’t give up on myself. It also means I’m very patient with others. I know it takes time to make those baby steps before progress can be made. Even if it’s a tiny step, that’s progress. I’m not just a survivor but I’m thriving after years of trying to just get better. I have overcome more than I ever imagined.
I am sensitive and compassionate. I know what it’s like to struggle with things. I’ve needed my own therapists and supportive soul purpose coach. Sometimes, I just didn’t get things done unless someone was standing on the sidelines cheering me on. While I was putting the finishing touches on my book, I was struggling with doubts about my ability to actually get it published. I could not remember how to do some basic wordprocessing since I hadn’t done it in decades. My coach said to me, “Sophia, you’re a strong woman with a beautiful heart. You got this!” To this day, I still remember those lifegiving words and they echo in my heart and mind to keep going. In order to heal myself, I had to learn to be gentle with me and compassionate. Basically, I’ve been given it and it’s what I live. I pay it forward.
I believe in magic. I use positive energy and positive thinking everyday. It is how I healed with the help of my therapist. It is what took me out of years of darkness and now into the light. I believe anything is possible by just believing in yourself, therein lies your magic, work it! Belief in yourself is powerful.
